  • Yes that is normal. I am the same way I worry a lot also. My oldest nephew had a month full of teeth by the time he was a year in half. He started teething at 3 months old. He's fine don't worry mommie :~)

  • My son cut his first tooth at 4 months! Get ready for the drool :-) Some kids cut 'em early. Frozen washcloths, cold teething rings and other things to chew on are great for the early teething days!

  • That's normal. It's not common, but it's still normal. Just help him through it. My daughter cut her first tooth around 6 months, and instead of just having one first tooth, she had two that cut at the same time. So she never had a first tooth, she had first teeth.
